I make mango smoothies all year, but a mango daiquiri is pure vacation. Especially after a long day on the boat, just before my nap in the hammock. Even if you’re far away from a hammock, this cocktail could take you there.
For our trip to the Keys this year I brought a bag of frozen mangoes from last year’s crop to use up before mango season. I also brought some key limes from my cousin’s tree. I think key limes are way more flavorful than Persian limes. They’re yellow when ripe (as are all limes). If you know someone with a key lime tree, be very nice to them.
Mango Key Lime Daiquiri
- 1 cup fresh or frozen mango chunks
- 1/2 cup key lime juice
- 1/2 cup rum
- 2 tablespoons agave nectar (or more to taste)
- a dash of triple sec
- 1 cup of ice
Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Serve with a lime wedge. Umbrellas, straws, stirrers and floaters of rum are all optional, but highly recommended.
